Lord, Do It: Black, Queer Theologies and the Ethiopian Eunuch

In the classic James Cleveland song “Lord, Do It”, remade by Hezekiah Walker in 2001, the protagonist makes a pushy demand of Jesus, not unlike the Ethiopian eunuch’s demand of St. Philip in Acts. Throughout history black, queer people have made demands of those in power regarding healthcare, education, and housing. These demands for equity reflect the immediacy of material liberation for communities that have often found themselves on the receiving end of white, heterosexist, patriarchal, and capitalist forms of denigration. In this workshop, Broderick Greer will facilitate a discussion on the role of imagination in black, queer theologies and how Christians might counter theological and practical paradigms that harm black, queer people. This workshop will also explore how churches can center the testimonies of LGBTQ children, youth, and adults through deep listening and incarnational engagement.
